I don't believe there were any "early production" cars made without
the diagnostic connectors. Anyway, an 11/90 build date isn't early
production (my red car is 7/90). How hard have you looked? I'll bet
if you get your head down there and look long enough above the
driver's footwell area you'll eventually see the ports--pulled off
their mounts and stuffed out of sight. Unless of course you see a
bunch of clipped wires.... :(
The addition of a bulb to provide a check-engine light is a
straightforward matter. AFAIK, reading and clearing any codes
requires access via those missing connectors--switching ECUs won't
help in that respect.
